I owe you a follow-up to my no-poo journey. Well, it’s over. It was just that, a journey and I ended it. I told myself when I started that I would give it 6 weeks and if I wasn’t sold at that point I would go back to shampoo. 6 weeks came and went and I never got that “magic and amazing” hair that I’ve heard people get at the end of that time. It was extra work for me to prepare everything and well lets be honest, my hair doesn’t get styled and finished everyday at this stage of life. So having greasy hair in a knot on my head wasn’t an attractive look for me. You may have tried it and had a totally different experience. I hope so! I’ve decided that for me, I’m going to spend my time and energy eliminating toxins in other areas of our lives and stick to my toxic-chemical-amazing shampoo. Go ahead crunchy friends and judge away. 🙂 I found myself using my no-shampoo wash then getting out of the shower and putting chemical ridden mouse, root lifter and then finished with hair spray on my hair. Ha! I made myself laugh at that routine. Kind of counterproductive don’t ya think?
I’m committing for 30 days to style my hair everyday. Some of those days a style might be a cute ponytail but I’m committing to putting effort into it. I have the time I just choose not to some days. I’m tired of feeling tired and drab looking and styling my hair is one thing I can do to feel fresh on a daily basis. Who wants to join me in this challenge? I know my husband will enjoy this challenge! 😉 I got about a foot of hair cut off this last weekend and am now learning to style a new hairstyle for me. I’m loving that it took me FIVE minutes to blow dry my hair. FIVE minutes people! I could never get it dry in less than 20 minutes before. Here is a corny mirror picture of my freshly styled hair!
